The fund had a year later become the world’s most profitable hedge-fund in history having shown a record profitability of 4,847% year-on-year.

Finance & investment

Our team members have mastered the strategies and tactics of conventional finance employing a thorough research of global commodities market back in 2008, and closed multi million transactions with listed and private equity commodity producers. For about 15 years certain of our team members have been successfully investing in capex and opex ventures on different stages and benefited from a number of prolific exits.

Beside the consolidation of the regulated trading infrastructure on the national level, certain of our team members succeeded in global operations including international DMA brokerage with proprietary HFT-compatible software and first regulated OTC derivatives-focused UCITS fund based in Ireland.
